5th, 6th, 7th and 8th playoff spots in the East

5th - Toronto 32-28... Would play Boston
6th - Milawaukee 32-29... Would play Atlanta
7th - Chicago 31-30... Would play Orlando
8th - Miami 30-31... Would play Cleveland
-----
9th - Charlotte 29-31... Currently set to go fishing.

Boston could pass Atlanta for the third seed, but we know the top four seeds in the East are locks. There'll be a battle between those five teams mentioned above for the last four playoff spots. Who'd you rather see left out of the playoffs?

I think Charlotte is going

I think Charlotte is going to make it. I could honestly see Miami or Chicago missing it . I dont want miami too, but dwade has no help at all. Chicago is probably going to miss it this year though. Joakim is still out and it is going to really hurt them

I hope Miami misses the

I hope Miami misses the playoffs.  I'm tired of watching that one man team get abused in the postseason.  Charlotte & Chicago are two of my favorite teams & I also wouldn't mind watching Brandon Jennings in the playoffs.

These are the matchups that I want to see:

Toronto vs. Atlanta

Milwaukee vs. Boston

Charlotte vs. Cleveland

Chicago vs. Orlando

to be honest i like how it

to be honest i like how it is now. i dont really wanna see the bobcats. i liek watching jennings, who doesnt like watchign wade, rose is exciting and who doesnt like watching bosh. i do hope miami stays at 8th though so we can see wade vs bron even though the cavs will more then likely sweep them

i do not see an upset at all

i do not see an upset at all in the east. i think hawks, celtics, cavs, and magic all advance. i see the cavs beating the hawks, and magic beating celtics, and cavs coming out of the eastern conference. west is a different story but the eastern conference may be boring this playoffs

boring?..yeah i really doubt

boring?..yeah i really doubt that. also dont see the cavs coming out the east because of the shaq injury. theres no clear cut team int he east which is why i think its gonna be very interesting between those top 4 teams. none of them have a clear edge over the other

I'm with you. I'd rather see Milwaukee, Chicago and Charlotte. I just don't think Miami has a chance at all. I'm sure a LeBron vs D. Wade matchup would be entertaining to a lot of people, but not to me. I want to see a good playoff series and I think Charlotte would play Cleveland tougher. Gerald Wallace can't stop, but he can defend LeBron.

Yeah I want to see Tyrus

Yeah I want to see Tyrus swat LeBron a few times haha.  Maybe see a lot of trash talking.  Seriously though that would be a good series I think.  It would go 6 games, maybe 7.  

Miami against the Magic, Celtics, Cavs, or Hawks would be a massacre. Until Wade gets some help I'm tired of watching that team.

I am really dreaming of a Charlotte vs. Chicago series....somehow someway it needs to happen.  lol

It'd be a better series than

It'd be a better series than you think lol. Charlotte actually plays Cleveland very well. I'm not for sure, but I think they beat Cleveland 3/4 times this season since the Stephen Jackson trade. Wallace really defends LeBron well and seems to take that matchup personally. He had a career game vs LeBron earlier in the season. I think it could very well go 6 games.

i know they beat the cavs 2

i know they beat the cavs 2 or 3 three times but the playoffs is a different ball game. actually i dont think i thought about it to much when you said 6 game because that means it can be 4-2....i can see that happening

Actually i real;ly dont

Actually i real;ly dont think its that different till you get to the seventh game on the road and of course road games are tough. Bobcats are tough, they match up well with the Cavs and i think could definetly take it to 6, or 7. But i would still pick the Cavs.
